Labelmaster Consultants Named 2020 Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive

Dangerous Goods Specialists Recognized for Leadership in Helping Shippers Navigate Business Challenges

CHICAGO--()--Labelmaster, the leading provider of products, services and technology for the safe and compliant transport of dangerous goods (DG) and hazardous materials (hazmat), today announced that Vice President of Consulting, Pia Jala, and Senior Manager of Labelmaster Services, Jay Johnson, have been selected as 2020 Pros to Know Award recipients by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine in the provider category.

The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This year’s list includes more than 200 individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges.

Pia Jala brings nearly 45 years of transportation and hazmat shipping experience to her role at Labelmaster, where she leads Labelmaster’s consulting services team in helping shippers develop tailored solutions for the safe and efficient transportation of DG. She has helped organizations around the world with a wide range of issues related to shipping and handling DG – from understanding regulations to completely overhauling hazmat programs.

With almost 30 years of experience in DG shipping and compliance, Jay Johnson specializes in packaging and logistics solutions for the chemical and biotech industries. In his role at Labelmaster, Johnson works with companies that ship DG to identify process gaps putting their global supply chain at risk, and helps them establish more efficient practices for handling and shipping hazmat compliantly and safely.

“We are proud to have Pia and Jay recognized for their ongoing efforts to support the safe and compliant movement of dangerous goods around the globe,” said Alan Schoen, president, Labelmaster. “Their deep industry expertise and knowledge of hazmat shipping regulations help organizations navigate the complex, ever-changing regulations that govern the transport of dangerous goods, and achieve real business value by creating a more compliant supply chain.”

Overcoming Gaps in Today’s Hazmat Supply Chain

The evolution of ecommerce and the global supply chain has made moving DG in a safe and compliant manner more important than ever. Unfortunately, several key gaps exist within many organizations’ processes and infrastructure that make maintaining a safe and reliable hazmat supply chain challenging, and which put their operational efficiency, reputation and bottom line at risk.

It is critical for companies to identify process gaps and establish safe and compliant practices to handle and ship hazmat in a compliant and efficient manner.
